Mattel Hot Wheels Minecraft Minecart Die-Cast Metal VehicleI haven't played the game as of yet, so when I saw a dozen or more of the Minecraft Minecart, I thought "hey, that's neat" and went on my merry way. It was designed to give smaller figures a ride, but I don't collect those - and at $3-$4 per, I wasn't planning on starting. A few days later I realized how they would work with Bit Figs most likely, so I spent the dollar - and most of the Minecarts at Toys R Us were long gone. It's a simple vehicle, but the feature is the selling point - there are little flaps that can hold a tiny pixel figure in place. Bit Figs Bun works quite well.

It's a box! There are lots of little painted pixels - most are on straight - but when you get right down to it this is basically a milk crate on wheels. It's not pretty, but it's functional enough to send your tiny figures - Fighter Pods, Titan Masters, Minecraft, Bit Figs - along a Hot Wheels track.

The paint is good, but not perfect - given the precision needed with dozens of painted pixels, this is more or less to be expected. The grey and black pixels look more or less perfect. The wheels are small, black, and unpainted with a grey chassis, delivering a mostly plastic car. It's not even really obvious what the front or back is - it's just a little basket on wheels to cart around other, smaller figures. For this reason, it's fantastic.

Since the introduction of the Fig Rig [FOTD #670] I was wondering what else Mattel might do - we've had some Mega Bloks cars, and of course bottle openers, money clips, and other "useful" toys. A tiny cart for micro figures was not what I was expecting, but I'm digging it! I hope they do more with similar functionality and other unique shapes. How they'll redecorate this one like the Fig Rig, I don't know, but Mattel is nothing if not clever. For a kid with Minecraft toys - or other similarly sized figures - this is a solid purchase. Get one if you see it.
